CEO commits to latest Android update
Meizu is reportedly preparing to bring Android 4.0 to its current M9 handset and the upcoming MX variant. Responding to questions posted on Meizu's forums, CEO Jack Wong noted that the company will try to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich as soon as possible. The executive suggests the plans will not affect the release schedule for the MX.
The MX represents a significant upgrade to the M9, representing one of the first smartphones to utilize a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor. The device will be built around a 4.3-inch display with 640x960 resolution, with a choice between 32GB of storage or 16GB with a dual-core processor.
Wong reiterated a promise to release the MX before the end of the year, however a release date for the Android 4.0 upgrade remains unclear.
